Reader Comments on 'Watching Dolphins on Bohol'

One of the attractions of Bohol is the ability to go dolphin and whale watching on the Bohol Sea. Joselino "Jojo" Baritua runs a project in which former whale-hunters can still use their whale and dolphin spotting skills to earn a living, but now to guide tourists to the best spots for a meeting with those gentle giants and playful jokers of the sea....

My guess is there is a fee for watching the dolphins, a fee for exiting the country, a fee for most everything. Sounds like a place I don't want to visit? Too many hands not just asking but demanding.

hi annecy, yeah supercat is one of the best ferries for tagbilaran, but pls considered oceanjet also, if you want to maximize your stay here, pls chek the sched of oceanjet, they have more trips available in the early morning going to tagbilaran and late in teh afternoon in going back to cebu, for your accommodation, i can sugest you to chek DAO DIAMOND PENSION HOUSE, they have an aircon dormitory type good for 10pax, with free breakfast already, i think the rate is P275 per head. if you want more my idea you can email me to lrk_bohol@yahoo.com

I found that Supercat is the most affordable of the 3 ferries servicing Ceb-Tag routes. Anyway, does any one of you know where we can stay in Tagbilaran? We want a cheap hotel that can accommodate 6 persons in 1 room? Thanks

its a great thing that you have this website then indeed it is a great help in my part especially that i came from there and now i am in here as an OFW Worker in Qatar. Generally, my collegues here in the bank ask me where from the Philippines I am so I said it is where you can see one of the best wonders in the World that you can really appreciate with its natural beauty...THE LAND OF THE CHOCOLATE HILLS....which is basically known to different nationalities, although the fact that they knew it what country, they just wanted to know specifically where so i suggest this site of yours and seems that they appreciate all the things that is been stated in here and then now they wanted me to organize such event when we will be having our vacation next year in August, 2009. So, can you help me out in such a way that you can give me the details as to where they have to stay cause they will be much more as 20 persons and then of different nationalities. Me as a living residence there in the province of Bohol, i sell the tourism that BOHOL can offer to tourist so thats why i am writing to you is because of this reasons...basically, they wanted the iterinary which somehow i cant do such a thing cause I am here working in the bank then with them and I jsut make a research on the spicemen so thats why they are interested on such matter. So, Hope that you can be able to give me an ample of reasosn to hope for a positive and a glorious respond. Thanks to you and God bless as always.

My family and i have been wanting to go to bohol for the past year. we have postponed several times and now hopefully we push thru since we already have tickets. there are 10 of us and really want go for dolphin and whale watching. checked the site of one of the organizers and found out that for our group we will have to pay 1,000 each or 10,000 total. Unfortunately quite a hefty sum for us. Are there any other group that you can recommend for those with very tight budget? Please please help. thank you.

We went to Bohol last weekend. We had the usual day tour. Then when we arrived in panglao a boatman asked me if we want to go on dolphin watching the next day. In short we agreed, and pay him 1600 for the boat and island hopping in Balicasag. I was very disappointed because we were not able to see even a single tail of dolphin "maalon daw kasi sabi nun jayson (boatman), then we go straight to Balicasag. When I told this to Bohol Divers Hotel receptionist they told me that this is the usual alibi of some boatmen in Panglao, they just don't want to use much of their gasoline, thats why they did not look for a nice spot for dolphin watching.. beware of this kind of people in Bohol.. people there are nice except for that "jayson".

Hi! We plan to bring our kids to watch whales and dolphins this week. There ages are 6 and 10. Is it safe? How many minutes will it take to reach the spotting site from Bohol beach club? How much do you charge for a group of 3 adults and 2 kids?

We've watched dolphins with our 1 and 4 years old sons, and they both loved it. However, one thing of concern is the lack of life fests for the smallest children, so had to hold our youngest son constantly. Since I do not organize these trips myself, I give you a quote, but you can be in touch with one of the whale watching operators listed on this site.--Jeroen.

Hi, how much will it cost to experience whale/dolphin watching? We are planing to go to Bohol this coming April. Thanks.

This much depends on the number of passengers, as you'll have to pay for the boat--the more people, the cheaper. Count on over PHP 3000 if travelling alone, but PHP 1000 or less per head if travelling with a group of 10.--Jeroen.
